bug#22404: 25.1.50; Forcing `window-scroll-functions` to run.

Question, please:  Is it a necessary evil that the `timer-idle-list` must 
always trigger a redisplay?

I discovered today that the mere presence of anything attached to the 
`timer-idle-list` triggers a redisplay when the clock strikes midnight -- e.g., 
the following example triggers a redisplay after 10 seconds of inactivity:

    (run-with-idle-timer 10 'repeat 'ignore)

I am working on tracking down the issue of why redisplay doesn't realize that 
my cursor is below the bottom of the window or partially visible following 
certain large yanks or custom paragraph-down functions.  `font-lock-mode` was 
affecting my testing because I had 0.5 second idle timer for 
`jit-lock-context-fontify`.  For example, my point stayed out of view until the 
0.5 second buzzer went off, at which time it magically came back into view.  
The same thing will happen if I just have `'ignore` on an idle timer.

I do not yet have enough information to submit a meaningful bug report 
regarding the cursor staying below the bottom of the screen, but I feel I'm 
making some progress now that I tracked down the magical appearance of my 
cursor due to the `timer-idle-list`.

Thanks,

Keith
